This looks suspiciously like the feature corruption bug from 0.31.xx which resulted in adamantine spires and slade lanscapes, but that was supposed to have been fixed...
2012-06-02 21:24   
Indeed looks similar to the corrupted feature files bug... Then again, are there any feature files that would do anything with silt? Or is this possibly some kind of microbiome mountain?

I mean, caverns and adamantine and stuff, sure... but dirt? Doesn't fit the other bug, in my opinion.

Reminder sent to: Magitrek

Save definitely exhibits feature corruption as described in 0005077. The files that are causing corruption are dated 2012-05-17.

Magitrek, are you positive that you generated this world in 0.34.03+?

Text export in the worldgen file said 34.08.

That's bizarre because there are also files dated 2012-03-02 in there, which indicates 0.34.04 at the earliest.

I suspect this is related to 0005283.

Well, it didn't crash or segfault, or anything. When I unpaused it, it just ran really slowly, and the silt eventually dissipated.

Also, I took the pictures on 5/17, right after I generated it, but couldn't access the internet until recently.

Did you ever make any attempt to import saves from 0.31.25?
